Download Full Tilt Poker via PokerNews to play in a $55,000 added skill league which culminates in a $20,000 freeroll.
For the second week in a row, our exclusive Full Tilt Poker Skills Challenge featured a surprisingly low turnout. Just 358 players made it for the $1,000 freeroll last week, with 63 players making the money and scoring league points, with top honours going to Black8Yellow of the Ukraine who took down the freeroll for $205.
Right now luckboxnemo is leading the pack having cashed in both league events and standing at the top of the leader board.
But it’s still anyone’s to win. You can still get in on the action as there are 6 more of these money added league events every Wednesday and the ranking system does not penalise latecomers. There is still $51,000 in added money to play for.
Got the Skills? We have the Money.
The top finishers in each of the following events get league points which count towards the $3,200 League Final Freeroll and the $20,000 Championship Freeroll. For more information on how the league works, check out the $55,000 PokerNews Skills Challenge League Page.

FastTrack Your Way to the $20,000 Freeroll
If you miss out in the league, don’t have the time or just want to guarantee your spot, you can get there direct without playing any of the league events. That’s because any PokerNews referred Full Tilt Poker account holders who earn 200 Full Tilt Points in the month of April will be eligible to play also.
The $20,000 freeroll is likely to have one of the smallest fields but one of the biggest prize pools you are ever likely to see, so whether you play the league or not you want to get in on this action. If you have already been playing the league events in April you will already have plenty of Full Tilt Points to get you started.
So whether you fast track your way to the $20,000 freeroll or beat up the competition, if you’ve got the skills we have the $55,000 added money you’ve been waiting for. Download Full Tilt Poker via PokerNews and use bonus code UKPKRNEWS to get in on the action (Also good for a 100% up to $600 first deposit bonus)
Hurry for the Next Event...
It’s the $5.50 KnockOut on Wednesday with $2,500 added to the prize pool. You still have plenty of time to enter as it starts at 16:00 ET. The tournament ID is 221084449. The last $5+$0.50 tournament only featured 133 players, which meant that the $2,500 added money was four times that contributed by the players – don’t miss out on another big overlay like this.
